Web Space 3 and Piss Ants
Okay, here I go with web space 3. I can't reach my other two web hosts where my first two sites are located; therefore, I gotta put together yet another new website. You'd think I'd be frustrated, but I'm not. I think I'm gonna like the new host. Along with the free space they offer all kinds of bonus extras to jazz up the website.
And since this web host is such a dominant presence on the Internet, I'm hoping that means there is little chance of it closing down.
So that's the latest thing I have been obsessed with these past two or three days: putting together my new online home. It's 12:48 PM right now. The sun is shining outside. I have the day off. I have a ton of real-life things I should be doing, and instead I am sitting in my dark office/studio in desperate need to get off my butt and do something physical. So I think I'll just push away from my keyboard, put on some good tunes, and clean up Creekview Trailer, as well as myself. I'm going to open the windows, and let some fresh air in and truly enjoy this wonderful gift of a day.
I had a nice afternoon. I listened to some old records I have from back when I was in my late teens, early twenties. I played some Loggins and Messina (I love the song, Golden Ribbons) and I played some Karla Bonoff (ever hear the song, Home? Wow, it is a beautiful piece.) The music kept me company while I did my cleaning; the living room and kitchen are now up to par. And I even cleaned under my stove burners that needed it badly.
I had to clean them. Armies of ants recently have invaded Creekview and one of the places they go to feast themselves is under the stove burners. I have been at war with those armies since the beginning days of Spring and the ants keep winning all the battles. Hundreds of them die, but they have thousands at their headquarters burrowed beneath my trailer and so they keep replenishing themselves to return to my home and scrounge food from me.
I hate those little piss ants. I don't think they actually are piss ants, but it is a good name for me because they are constantly pissing me off.
I'm going to have to get serious though and buy some bug bombs and set them off down near their nests. I hate messing with pesticides though. I feel like they are always going to give me cancer.
Just exactly what is a piss ant anyway?
